Beginning Windows Store Application Development – HTML and JavaScript Edition introduces you to the Windows 8 modern app design paradigm and the new Windows 8 programming model developed around this paradigm. You'll learn to build rich, immersive applications designed to run on the many devices powered by Windows 8.
